What will you learn?

Step-by-step guide to begin your journey or master your piano skills.

You will grasp your skills fast and I promise to show you all shortcuts that I processed over the years. We will work on your posture, musicality, reading skills, understanding of the music form and styles, technical skills and much more. All material will be provided for you. The key of my teaching is to make you believe in your abilities to learn and play piano. More information here.

AMEB or ABRSM exams training

You will learn effective and efficient ways to prepare for comprehensive piano exams:

  • Sight-reading skills
  • Aural skills
  • Technical skills
  • Performance techniques
  • Music theory & history

Also you will learn how to minimise the performance anxiety at the exam. That includes breathing techniques, step-by-step ‘mental rehearsal’ technique, ‘walking on stage’ exercises. We will coach you how to create successful video recordings of your exam pieces, examination script, public speaking techniques and much more.


Talpic M1909_041

I was lucky to be trained in the Russian tradition of fine classical music in Moscow. I started to play piano at age of 5, then at 14 I was awarded a scholarship to the famous Gnessin State Musical College, now Russian Academy of Music.

In 1995 my family immigrated to New Zealand where I performed as a concert pianist, solo, with chamber groups, choirs and orchestras. In 2000 I moved to Melbourne to pursue my career in music and to further study at the Conservatorium of Music, The University of Melbourne and was awarded a Master of Music in 2003. I’ve been fortunate to learn my skills from outstanding teachers myself and have shared my knowledge and passion for teaching piano with my students of varying skill levels for over 15 years.
